These pictures have been modified, but the only difference I see in them from the REAL GK is the front upper grill which is empty on the real GK, and the rear taillights have orange in them on the real GK.

Enjoy the pics.

Hmmm....I don't know....Kinda generic. You can kinda see other cars in it's design. Like a base model Mustang for instance. The first and second gen Tib's are <i>very</i> distinctive. To each their own........

uggg I cant say how disappointed I am with this. The only thing that I remotely like is the Rear. But that's my opinion.

why must Hyundai copy other people's design???? they have been in business for long time, they should be able to make their OWN engine and design their own cars. pretty disappointed both exterior and interior
outside, looks like big blah(bt starting to like it) and side looks like mustang, Inside looks like 3rd gen Eclipses....
they can do better!!!

You all are jealous and will wish you had one when it hits the dealership! <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
I think it is just as unique as the 1st and 2nd gen Tib. You don't know how many people have tell me the 2nd gen Tib looks like an Integra from the front. <img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle>
To each their own, but I plan on having one when it hits the streets<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well... I think it looks okay, but personally I still like the '97-99 tibs the best. The 2000-2001 is kinda starting to grow on me and I guess this new one will take some time to find its place in my heart. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

I too don't understand why Hyundai has to copy other company cars. If you seen the new EF (Sonata) pics, its a copy of the Mercedes and Jag, and the concept pics of the new XG is pretty much like someone said, Mercedes and Nissan Altima copy.

They should let Kristo help design their cars. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

You can take almost any car on the market today and if you look hard enough you can say parts of it look like another car from another manufacturer.
An exampe would be, the S2000 looks like a muscle version of the new Miata. But do you think Honda was trying to copy Mazda? No way! The S2000 is way out of the Miatas league.
Also the Audi TT (hard top) loooks kind of like the VW Bug. Again the TT is way out of the Bugs legue.
It is kind of like a Rorschach test where you look at an ink blot and make it into something it is not. So don't be dissapointed that it kind of looks like this and that cause all the cars you named are great looking cars with extreme amounts of popularity. If the car sells well then aftermarket will be easier to get and that is what we all want. Let us see how it performs and then I think we will all be happy.

At first glance I didn't like it but the more I look at it the more I think that it's kind of phat! I to think that the car kinda looks like a Mustang but in a good way, if thats possible.

drive like a man!

Cars depict an era. That is why there are simularities.
You can always look at a car and tell it is from the 60's or 70's so it goes to say that you can pick pieces off one car and say it looks like another.

I think it's a great looking car. The only part that needs work is the front bumper/grill area. The GK that I saw (and have pictures of) has a tight ass spoiler on it. I'll see if I can find a way to post it and not get in trouble with Hyundai.

I see your point AUTOBOT. When I was talking about the Sonata I was referring to this pic.

http://www.geocities.com/red_agt/new-ef.jpg

I was just saddened by that pic. Its kinda embarrasing to know that the cars are almost an exact rip off of the others. You're right about cars looking similar, I guess that's how the market works. Like you said, it depicts an era.

Oh yeah... the side of the GK kinda looks like a Ferarri 456GT or a Mustang. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle> I guess seeing the car more and when it finally comes out will change my opinions about it. Kinda like how the 2000-2001, tibs are growing on me. <img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hi KayJai. I don't know what's wrong with the link. It worked for me and I just checked it again. Maybe it was down for a sec or something <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>

WTF? It works on Netscape but not IE,... weird, I even dumped the temp internet files and all too,... oh well,...

I see what you mean,... almost a total rip off of the Mercedez and Jag.
